In the November, 2010 issue of Safe Packaging Matters, we communicated that extensive change to all facets of Limited Quantity and air shipments were coming in the 1st quarter 2011. The first step in this process came in the form of a rulemaking [HM‐215K] intended to harmonize the CFR 49 with various international DG shipping regulations. As anticipated, these newly announced changes have a profound impact on shippers of hazardous materials due to the reformatting of the packing instructions in ICAO/IATA and the extensive changes in the International Limited Quantity shipping provisions that were incorporated into the CFR 49.
